News from valued advertiser on VeloUK on their cyclo-cross range


The Focus bikes make great race bikes, as you would expect from a company owned by multiple amateur and professional cyclocross world champion Mike Kluge. Then are fast, nimble and stiff, just what you want when you are chewing the bars trying to catch that guy in front to make up a place or fighting for the hole shot at the first corner.

We liked them so much we have decided to use them for our team bikes this season in the form of the Focus Mares AX 1.0.

The Cannondale CAADX bikes are a little more of an all-rounder, compared to the head down racy Focus. The Cannondale have mounts for proper full mudguards and even a rack. Because of this, you can commute all week on them then change the tyres unscrew the mud guards and race them at the weekend! You could even use them for a bike of light touring come the summer to really get your monies worth. They have a great design and a legendary aluminium frame which means they are ready for whatever you choose to throw at them.

The Celeste Bianchi’s sold out straight away but are on order and are due in any time now. Bianchi have really upped their game this year with their cross bikes, and it would almost be a shame to get that lovely paint covered in mud.

The Genesis bikes have a model in the range to suit every use you could think of from a stainless steel race bike with a hydraulic Di2 groupset to a hub geared commuter cross bike they have the bike to suit you. The great thing about the Kinesis cross bikes is that you buy them as a frameset and we can then custom build them to your exact specification.

Want short crank arms, a 32t cassette and a longer than usual stem? That can be sorted! Another great thing about a custom build is you don’t have to buy a whole new bike. If you already have a bike with components you like but want a frame upgrade, we can sort that out for you.
